WVC 18 - 30 - 2 §18-30-2. Legislative findings and purpose.
The Legislature hereby finds and determines that enhancing the accessibility and affordability of higher education for all citizens of West Virginia will promote a well-educated and financially secure population to the ultimate benefit of all citizens of West Virginia, and that assisting individuals and families in planning for future educational expenses by making the tax incentives in 26 U.S.C. §529 available to West Virginians are proper governmental functions and purposes of the state.

The Legislature also finds that continuation of the prepaid tuition plan and creation of a savings plan will further those governmental functions and purposes. It is, therefore, the legislative intent of this article to continue the prepaid tuition plan and to enhance the plan by authorizing the creation of a savings plan so that more students may attend eligible higher education institutions.
